In the paper an attempt has been made to empirically verify the relevance for Poland of the so called Kuznets hypothesis, being the basic fundamental of macroeconomic theories of wage and income inequality. A survey of the existent literature lets the author claim that no research of that type has yet been carried out for the case of Poland. Presentation of results is preceded by a concise survey of literature, with an emphasis on the outcomes of previous empirical research. Verification of the Kuznets hypothesis - both the simple and the augmented - was done with reference to the models used most frequently while investigating into the Kuznets curve. The outcomes - validated by a solid statistical inference - do not confirm the credibility of the simple hypothesis but suggest the relevance of the augmented Kuznets hypothesis. Thus, it follows from the results that in the long run the economic inequality in Poland is bound to diminish.(original abstract)
